About the Book

Andy Clyde starred in the second-longest series of shorts at Columbia Pictures (after the Three Stooges), with nearly 80 productions from 1934 to 1956. This film-by-film analysis of Clyde’s Columbia short comedies features introductory chapters on his early life, stage work, silent films and early talkies, as well as concluding chapters on his appearances in feature films—including several Hopalong Cassidy westerns—and his television roles on such shows as Lassie and The Real McCoys. Rare photos and graphics are included.
